Hedge Funds Care Cayman was founded in 2005 as the second international affiliate of HFC. Since that time, a hard working Committee of Hearts has distributed over USD$1.6 million in 40 grants to agencies and organisations in Cayman that work to prevent and treat child abuse and neglect.
Hedge Funds Care Cayman has undoubtedly been a force for change locally in addressing attitudes surrounding child abuse and neglect in Cayman. The group began by bringing together every child protection agency on the island in a forum to discuss the issues surrounding prevention, public awareness and service provision which gave the committee a platform for understanding where HFCC funds would be best placed and to provide the blueprint of a long term plan for child welfare here.
Since that time, great strides have been made in building awareness of the problem and the traumas inflicted; organisations are working together, forming alliances that cover specialised training of key employees and persons dealing with young victims of abuse; and specific personnel needs have been identified and met through Hedge Funds Care funding.
Hedge Funds Care Cayman is indebted to our academic advisor, Dr. Bart Grosman, and HFC staff who have been instrumental in assisting not only the Cayman grant-making committee, but also the agencies in Cayman in putting together projects that will meet our overall objective of obliterating child abuse and neglect in these islands.
